Arsene Wenger: Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez want to stay at Arsenal
Arsene Wenger today claimed that his two biggest stars – Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez – both want to stay at Arsenal.
Both have just over a year reamining on their deals and have been linked with moves away from the club but the manager believes that both are happy at the club and want to remain at the Emirtates next season.
Negotiations over new deals have now been put on hold until the summer, but Wenger hopes the two sides can work something out.
“Once you go into the final two or three months of the season, everybody is focused on the season. You give yourself a moment to relax.
“I personally believe both of them want to stay. I hope the club will find an agreement with them.”
It is about as clear as Wenger has spoken over there futures and with both players suggesting while away on international duty that they are happy to stay and at least see out their contracts, perhaps keeping both isn’t as unrealistic as it has seemed recently.
